Do you know how to drive safely in heavy springtime rain?

As winter gives way to spring, it goes without saying that most people will enjoy the warmer weather. However, there's something you need to know: Rainstorms are extremely common during this time of the year.

If you find yourself on the road as the rain begins to fall, you have two basic options:

  • Continue to drive until you reach your destination
  • Pull over and wait for the rain to subside

If you continue to drive, perhaps because you need to arrive at your destination on time, here are some tips to follow:

  • Remain patient: Even if you're in a hurry, you need to remain patient, as rushing in wet weather will increase the likelihood of an accident.
  • Use your headlights: This does two things. First, it allows you to more easily see the road ahead, and second, it makes it easier for other drivers to see your vehicle.
  • Provide more space: You should never drive too closely to the vehicle in front of yours, especially in wet weather. Do yourself a favor and leave an additional one to two car lengths of space.

These are the types of steps you can take to drive safely when the rain begins to soak your region during the spring season.

If you're doing these things and another driver isn't, he or she could cause an accident. At that point, move to safety and call 911. Also, make sure you get all your injuries checked out. From there, you can learn more about the crash, the cause and your legal rights for holding the person responsible.
